About

You will work closely with your supervisors to develop, investigate and write-up a project at the cutting edge of research.

Staff in Modern Languages research a wide range of areas, including literature, linguistics, translation and film.

There are frequent public seminars and lecture series which feature distinguished scholars and public figures in related fields from the UK, Europe and throughout the world.
